Full description
Take the shortest way into the glorious Topkapi Palace of Istanbul. Choose the time that suits you best, meet your host in front of the museum, and go directly to the entrance. You can save up to 2 or 3 hours by not standing in the famous lines.

Following security checks, receive a brief introduction as to what to see inside, including the council hall, arms and armory section, or holy relics. Afterwards, enjoy the palace at your own pace.

You can enjoy a long coffee break in-between looking over a spectacular view of the Bosphorus. It is possible to see all of the palace within one hour, or you can choose to stay inside for several hours at your leisure.
